Night photography is something that I've come back to, time and time again. Ever since that very first night photograph back in July 2007, I've been drawn to making photographs at night.
While it's exciting to capture the colors in night photography, converting the same image to black and white is just as satisfying. Sometimes, the colors in a night photograph can be distracting. The eye doesn't always know quite where to look if the colors are overwhelming. The same can be said with a daytime photograph. Not every photograph looks good converted to black and white. This night photograph looks good in both black & white and in color. There are enough lights on in the buildings to clearly outline the black night background.
I entered this particular photograph in a contest a number of years ago and it won 2nd place in the Black & White category!
